This Friday I'm hosting "Link up a Dip" and I"m featuring my Cheesy Super Bowl Dip. So have fun with me today and link up any type of dip post!
Let's Double Dip! Happy Friday!
(I'm looking for some Happy Friday co-host/sponsors. Check my PR Friendly/Contact page to let me know if you want to join in. I will have the post live Thursday night at 7pm)
Cheesy Super Bowl Dip
8 oz Colby , shredded
16 oz crisp, fresh bacon bits
1 c. Parmesan cheese, shredded or grated
1 1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. chopped onion
4 garlic, minced
1 round loaf bread (20-26 oz) (I use Hawaiian Round Bread loaf)
1 bag Seneca Onions
1/2 pkg mix
1 T. dry chives
1 T. Oil (I use EVOL)
Fry bacon into crisp bits. Shred/grate cheese. Chop onion and mince garlic. Hollow out bread, reserving torn pieces. (Cut into the bread making the top crust cut to look like a football.)
Mix together bacon, cheeses, mayo, . Spoon into bread. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake 350 for 45 min without the top! After about 20 minutes I lightly cover the bread bowl with foil. This will let the dip continue to get warm and melty and prevent the bowl from getting too dark.
While baking, prepare topping. Cut open the Seneca Onions bag and pour in 1/2 pkg Ranch Dressing mix, chives and oil. Close bag and shake! When dip is finished, pull out of oven and top with 1/2 bag of onions (reserve the rest as a side to snack on or add on top of the dip half way through)
*To be fun I lightly put the football cut out on top of the dip and used Seneca Onions as the pig skin laces! You can also wrap the bowl in some foil to give it some insulation to keep warm if not serving the dip right away.
Serve with the torn bread, and pretzels.
Serves 4-6 hungry football fans.
